# How many grams of Na2CO3 are contained in 500. g of a 5.5% by mass Na2CO3 solution?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The mass of Na2CO3 present in 500.0g of the given solution is to be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

The mass percentage of a compound present in a solution is calculated by dividing the mass of the compound present in the solution by the total mass of the solution and then multiplying it by 100. The formula for mass percentage is represented as:

mass%=MMt×100%

Where,

• M represents the mass of the compound present in the solution.
• Mt represents the total mass of solution.
Explanation

The mass of the given Na2CO3 solution is 500g.

The mass percentage of the Na2CO3 in the given solution is 5.5%.

The formula for mass percentage is represented as:

mass%=MMt×100%

Where,

• M represents the mass of the compound present in the solution.
• Mt represents the total mass of solution.

Rearrange the above equation for the value of M
